Debating in Rang a Sé

For the past few weeks we’ve been working on persuasive writing techniques drafting and re-drafting debates to take part in the school trials for the debating team.

We learned a lot about the structure and format of a debate and how to back up the points we make with research or quotes. The hardest part was making sure we maintain eye-contact and project our voices with just the right amount of persuasion.

Everyone in our class delivered an excellent speech and eventhough some of us were really nervous beforehand, we all agreed that we were so glad we did it. Four of our class took part in the school trial and we want to congratulate Ciara who made it onto the school team.

We also want to congratulate Miracle who won the greyhound drawing competition with his amazing impression of a greyhound.

Well done to both of them!

More next week from Marie’s class.
